This is soooooo underrated, we can't believe nobody told us about this place! We found the fountain by mistake - whilst waiting for the MOSH museum to open. It's beautiful with lots of history and great for pictures - can only imagine what a sight it is at night. Nothing like this in England. Awesome - a must see in... More

This was our first stop on a road trip to Jersey. I read the reviews before going and thought it would a good place to stop. It was ok. It's a fountain, by the water, behind a museum. I was expecting a nicer setting. Maybe it's better at night when the lights are on.

I used to love going to this fountain to take pictures. It's beautiful anytime of the day: During the day, if it's sunny with that beautiful blue sky. Or at night when it becomes very colorful. I went once on Christmas and they had music and the water was "dancing" and changing colors according to the song. Amazing! The view... More

When I saw a video from a friend, it looked like a small fountain. However, when I saw it last week, it was the largest fountain I've seen, and it was just wonderful to sit by to relax. The colors change, there are several spouts for fountains, there is covered and uncovered seating, and you can lean right up against... More

I made a point to walk across the Main St bridge to go visit the Friendship Fountain because I read reviews that it was stunning. It was a nice fountain but there wasn't anything special about it and it wasn't all that large. My recommendation was don't make a special trip just for it, but enjoy it from the northside... More

Came down to Jacksonville with some friends and we stopped by the Friendship Fountain and strolled around a bit. Lovely fountain colors at night and a great place to sit, talk and enjoy some time with friends. The view of the river and bridges surrounding the area was also a plus!

This is a city park right on the river between two bridges and surrounding a huge decorative fountain. The park is almost directly across the river from the Landing in downtown Jacksonville. There are multiple seating benches near the fountain and a few on the river front itself. Several picnic tables were located near the riverfront for those who enjoy... More

If you have a chance, visit this place. Find a bench and just take in the view of the river, the fountain with changing colors, enjoy the huge shady oak trees and look out over the water. It's a nice getaway and just steps away from the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

We drove the hour from Amelia island for dinner and then a viewing of the lights at the friendship fountain. Our dinner went faster than expected, so we arrived at the fountain at 7:30. I had read in their website that starting July 1st at 8:30pm there would be,"a Fourth of July special of lights in the fountain and patriotic... More
